We had a lovely stay at Sonesta, the staff were very excellent and couldn't do enough for you. We were located in the best rooms so really happy about that. The location is perfect...a 3 min walk to the beach and then you can walk along the beach to Calangute where all the seafront restaurants are. If you wanted to venture towards the main roads, there are plenty of restaurants there also. Buffet breakfast was good and changed a few items every day.

This hotel has been a regular stop for us. Very clean rooms pool and open spaces the only reason I have marked down is the rooms could do with small updates- re paint the walls, new sockets and not very user friendly when try to get ready in the evening, the lights are dim and the chair near the mirror not the right height. Also the air con is noisy.
